PLACES, FIGURES AND STILL LIFES

Posted on set 19, 2012

Works from the Galleria d’Arte Moderna di Roma Capitale
Via Francesco Crispi
November 19, 2011 – September 30, 2012


Contemporary arts of the XX and XXI century

The first exhibition after the reopening of the Galleria proposes three itineraries focusing on key themes that run through the whole chronological span of the collection, presenting the masterpieces in an absolutely unprecedented perspective. The three thematic sections, each occupying one of the building’s floors, concern the Figure (and its many aspects); places (in particular views and visions of Rome); and The Shape of Things (still lifes and the new readings of an artistic genre that was a favourite in the 20th century). In addition, there is a Sculpture section, the only theme that intersects all the other sections in the exhibition. The exhibition winds up with a room devoted to works by Futurist artist Giacomo Balla, and the Prints and Drawings Room.
